casa blanca lily

One of my favorite flowers of summer, the Casa Blanca lily always reminds me of my mom because they usually bloom near her birthday. I first learned about them in NYC working for a flower shop called Madderlake, when they were the most elegant and expensive rare cut flowers. After I moved back to Virginia the name stuck with me... and we bought some bulbs for the garden. They lasted for years out there in Manassas and were added to my Washington garden not long ago as a reliable repeater. Only one or two inside will fill a room with sweet perfume more than a few will knock you out but they are magnificent in the garden.
